Lifting of various light and heavy objects is the tedious work done by many of the people on many occasions. Manpower is utilized in many areas where heavy materials are to be handled. Nowadays, this lifting of loads for hours together has become very common in every person’s life whether it may be bag or cup of coffee or books, laptop, tools which he works throughout the day, etc. At industries, heavy materials are to be machined and be loaded into the machinery, this requires a person to transfer uneven raw materials up to the cutting or crushing machines. With the EXO-SKELETON, a person can work freely by wearing it on his body and can lift heavy loads as easy without difficulty. The main objective here is to make a person to go through less strain while lifting heavyweights. This can be successfully used in production lines, weight transferring areas, military purposes, even in the medical field where when a person is unable to move his limbs, he can wear and easily can move his body parts. The main raw material used is Mild Steel as it is easily available and cheap. The movement occurs through the air compressor and pneumatic cylinders. The 3-D Modelling of the whole is done in Solidworks 2016 and the analysis of the parts was done in Ansys 18.1 workbench software.
